6:53am
out the door this morning. >> exactly. they might be dealing with snow but we have the fog. let's talk about what's going on in terms of when it's going to get out of here. it will take a while. we have a dense fog advisory until 9. but once that is canceled, once that is over, we will have the fog. it's going to be a dreary day. we can see lots of clouds around right now. back off towards the west, we have showers that are going to move through the area as well. so as you step out the door this morning, don't forget the rain gear because you will need it. you can see for yourself what's going on in bel air. we have wet roadways this morning and look at the camera. yes, the camera is wet not that clear due to the rain and the fog that we are going to continue to get as we go through the morning hours and also even the afternoon. mount airy we are dealing with fog across the area. and this will continue through the morning and then get out of here and return as we go back into the afternoon. so, it won't be as dense this afternoon but you will see the patchy fog in some areas. this morning, i told you that
6:54am
you needed the rain gear right? well, you don't need the big coat like you've had needed in the past. because the temperatures are well above average. look at 51 in mount airy. we are seeing 46 in hanover and 49 in gaithersburg traveling through that area. 43 kingsville and 50 in stevensville and 55 in denton and cambridge coming in at 53 degrees this morning. now, at the surface, the reason why we are going to get so warm is well a warm front will move through the area. temperatures in the mid-60s and close to 70 if we get sunshine. but even without the sunshine those winds out of the south going to make the temperatures bump up for today. there's the cold front that's going to move through. warm air cold air and yes, we could see thunderstorms hear rumble of thunder as we go into the afternoon. that's not out of the question. future trend not picking up on a whole lot. just a clouds and a few showers possible but behind that, high pressure will build in and we will get more sunshine in the
6:55am
forecast. and also, temperatures are going to fall by tomorrow, but, they will not fall that much. we will be seasonable. 65 for today. and that's what i am forecasting. 45 degrees by tonight with spotty showers still possible and here's high temperature for tomorrow. 52 degrees under partly sunny skies. and yes it will be cooler but temperatures still slightly above average because we should be at 47 degrees for this time of the year. and as we head into wednesday, temperatures at 48 degrees and the next chance for rain on sunday. let's check the abc2 timesaver traffic with lauren cook good morning. >> reporter: good morning. fog is going to be the main concern there's reduced advice ability across the region. so turn on the low beams and -- visibility across the region. so turn on the low beams and take it easy westbound route 100 at route 10, something to watch out for. and in baltimore we have a crash on edmonton and poplar grove street and another downtown right on baltimore street that's at gay street. if you are traveling on 695, here's a live look in towson at york road. a crash cleared from the outer
6:56am
loop here. but still, traffic really starting to pick up and here's what 83 looks like up in hunt valley. you can't see the highway. that's how much reduced visibility we are dealing with. so, definitely take it slow this morning. it's really, really bad out there. turn on the low beams. megan over to you. all right a farmer turned a 200 acre field into a giant proposal. it sounds cute but not everything went according to plan. lauren thought he would ask his girl fry jody to married him using a empty field e used a tractor to spell out the name but the j in her name is backwards. unable to fix it he went in a plane with jody to take pictures of the farm. listen. >> that's when i put up the lens and threw the eyelid i could see lauren in dirt. and his name is spelled out and i went huh and i pulled it down and sure enough there it was. >> even with the backwards j she said yes. it's not like he got the name
